I know everyone is getting ready for Christmas but I thought you wouldn't mind seeing the cute gift I made my mom using the amazing Printers Tray project kit :)
I know it's quite difficult sometimes to find Christmas gifts for our loved ones, especially if they keep telling you they don't need anything! Well, there's one thing they always need : LOVE!
So, I thought I would work on a project to make my mom happy and I know she's going to like it :)
Ok so this is what you might need to make this project :
- this month Printers Tray project kit
- adhesive (I really like this one because it's fast and easy to use)
- Mulberry mist
- Charcoal mist
- Lime twine
- Yellow twine (I can't live without those twines now)
- Turquoise twine
- FIVE 2,5x3,5 photos of your loved ones :)
My photos are a little bit smaller than the ATC's size as I've been having problems with my printer but, in a way, I like it better like this as I managed to mount them on patterned papers and it looks good too.
You'll see that, on another ATC, I used this clear acrylic butterfly as a mask with my Charcoal mist. You just need to use a baby wipe to clean your butterfly afterwards.
Here's a very clean design, not to get a too overwhelm and busy design on all of my ATC's.
For this one, I just cut stripes of papers, glue it on my ATC and sprayed some mist on top of it all. Then you can use a heat gun to make it dry faster, if you don't like to wait (just like me). Cutting the chipboard button can add interest to your design, as you're working in frames.
Those tiny flowers are just too cute for words!
You can use tiny embellishments on your alphas as well.
This is what I was explaining earlier with the butterfly clear acrylic. Doesn't it look cool? Simply outline it with a white pen, write a bit of journaling inside the shape and ta-da!
Here, I cut a flash card in two and work on two ATC's frame at a time, in order to match the design a little bit.
And this is what it looks like in my artroom vintage wall! :) Too bad I'm giving it to my mom because I think it looks great on my black&white vintage wallpaper :D but that'd be the reason to get me another Printer's tray :)
I hope you liked it, girls, that you got as much inspiration as you can :)
